San Marino becomes fastest growing travel destination in Europe

According to data released by United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), San Marino is the fastest growing travel destination in Europe. San Marino, a 23 sq mile country situated entirely within Italy with a population of 33,000 has been a hot favourite amongst travellers in recent times.

The data states that San Marino saw a 31.1% increase in travellers year-over-year, more than 78,000 travellers visited the landlocked nation in 2017. The data was published in UNWTO’s Tourism Highlights 2018 Edition report.

“International tourist arrivals grew seven percent in 2017, the highest increase since the 2009 global economic crisis and well above UNWTO’s long-term forecast of 3.8% per year for the period 2010 to 2020,” states the report.
